The Anthracite Valley USBC recently awarded scholarships of $500.00 each to two students who participate in sanctioned bowling programs. Idle Hour Lanes, South Side Bowl, Valley Lanes & Wallenpaupack Bowling & Sports Center make up the Association's 1,700 members. Kiearra Saldi & Kyle Nolan won the scholarships. Each applicant was judged on academic & sports performance as well as their contributions to the community. Ms. Saldi attends Holy Cross High School and is entering her Senior year while Mr. Nolan will be in his Senior year at Wallenpaupack Area High School. The Anthracite Valley USBC also honored graduating Senior Greg Matyjevich with a special 300 Plaque after the West Scranton teen rolled a perfect 300 game during the 2017-18 at South Side Bowl.
